Drew McIntosh is the birth son of Philip and Maria McIntosh. Direct descendants of the Jamaican Maroons, his parents have traced their lineage back to the Ashanti people of the Gold Coast of Africa. Like his father, Drew was born gifted, or ‘foyeyed’ (four-eyed,); with second sight. Drew can see into the spirit world and possesses the ability to converse with the spirits.
When Drew was seven-years-old, he journeyed with his parents to the fabled Cockpit Country at the fervent request of CUDJOE, the village chief & Myalman of the Jamaican Maroons. Cudjoe knew of Drew’s hidden powers and abilities foretold to him in a prophecy. He believed Drew was the chosen one that would lead his people from Babylon to Zion.
“I am the Conquering Lion, protector of the animal world to which all humans belong.”
– Drew McIntosh
Drew became Cudjoe’s apprentice and under his guidance, he not only learned the ways of a Myalman, he proved himself worthy of being the possessor of the prized amulet once held by Cudjoe’s brother, Quaco, a powerful Obeahman who was banished from Accompong for abusing the spiritual powers of Obeah and sentenced to exile inside Windsor Caves.
